Message from the President/CEO, Annette Schnabel

We are lucky in healthcare to be invited into people’s lives. While we do not always know the challenges each person is facing, by demonstrating genuine concern for each person, we can give them the opportunity to feel blessed on their life journey.

Perry is committed to focusing on our communities’ future health. We encourage you to peruse our website as your health resource during your journey. We wish all our community members a healthy and happy 2019!
